The Craw-Kan "Your Community Technology Partner" Team of the Week from the Southeast Kansas coverage area is the Girard Lady Trojan track and field team.
GHS, who opened up last week with their first meet of the season, took second place out of 11 teams at the Labette County track and field meet in Altamont on Friday. Chanute took top honors with 102 points as a team as the Trojans scored 95. Girard was led by senior Cailie Logue, an Iowa State signee, who is among the nations best, as she took first in the 3200 and 800. Logue had one of the fastest 1600 meter times in the nation at 4:44 last spring as a junior and is the top returning runner in the entire state of Kansas. Layne Karhoff also had an oustanding meet, winning the 1600 and placing second behind Logue in the 800. Rachel Stephan also had two second place finishes in the 200 and 400 for Girard. The 4x400 also took first as a team.
The varsity team won't be back in action until April 11th when they travel to Riverton. The Trojan boys also had some success as the team took third place at LCHS.
